Bif (1540) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 12, 2014
On tap. Served a dark brown color with a small head and some lacing. Aroma of malt, bit of coffee, chocolate and bit of spice and dark fruit. Taste of malt, coffee, trace of dark fruit and spice. Mild bitterness and clean finish. Full body! smooth, creamy and a bit sweet. Reminds me a bit of Pumking on steriods.

If this is retired on this website, why did the last guy review it in March? Ok, well, I know its not retired. But this is reviewed from notes from December of 2013. The appearance was a jet black colored body with a thin to half finger white foamy head that quickly dies leaving barely any lacing. The smell like ST took "Pumking" and threw it in a stout and upped the ABV, yep its a Double Stout for ya, roasty chocolate coming up combining into the "Pumking" flavoring with a light cinnamon. The taste takes the Pumking with some cinnamon and roasty chocolate-ness coming through, light chocolate covered "Pumking" aftertaste and a dry finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium, somewhat sessionable but I sipped this one. Carbonation is wonderful for a Double Stout - somewhat smooth yet there’s a slight crisp element which I like. Overall, so in reality this is "Pumking" thrown into a stout and I believe that’s what Southern Tier did and I believe it turned out the way they wanted. However, with me, since I’m not a true fan of Pumking, but won’t bust on this too much since the stout tries to mask some of the "Pumking"-ness, I think I’d take this over Pumking any day. Still, I’d look for other "pumpkin" double stouts before this as that "pumpkin pie" crustiness of sorts just like in Pumking does become quite overbearing throughout.

Pours the color of cola with an off white head which disappears quickly. Aroma is burnt pumpkin pie. Taste is quite interesting......cherry, birch flavor, slight coffee, touch of chocolate.

Oily brown pour, brown head. Lactose sweetness is very forward followed by a prune note, some milk chocolate, cocoa nibs, lightly sweet finish.

Hands down the best beer I have ever had. So sweet and so seductive.Unfortunately it is breaking the bank. I’ve bought 4 cases(at 116.00 a case after tax) and around 20 separate bottles(@12.00 a piece). I only have 8 bottles left.

Fresh bomber at my place to the face. Pours thin black with tiny head that disappears quickly. Aroma is burnt bread crust and Caramelized sugar. Taste is sweet burnt pumpkin pie crust, light malt, sugar. Finish is medium to long and thin. Interesting brew, too much going on to drink a lot of it.
